International Admissions

Thank you for inquiring about Ozark Adventist Academy.  OAA is an English-speaking school.  We do not require Tofel scores to be accepted, however, students must speak English well enough to converse and function in a classroom.  A Skype type interview with the student will be required to determine if the student’s English speaking ability is adequate.  (We do not have an ESL program.) 

Please note that the dormitories and cafeteria are closed when school is not in session. Most international students have family in the states to visit during vacations or breaks. Students will need to provide their own health insurance.

Ozark Adventist Academy requires that all international students pay the total school fees before an acceptance letter for a student visa may be issued. International students are not eligible for discounts or student aid and early payment discounts do not apply.

International Students must provide English translations for all school records, transcripts, immunization and medical records.

Parents and students should read and be familiar with the policies of the school.  Please read the Student Handbook.

In order for a student to be considered by the Admissions Committee the following documents must be submitted:

  • Online Application/Enrollment
    Click on New Student Applications, then click on create an account
    Once you have created a username and password, click on Online Application/Log in

  • New Student Applications

  • School Transcripts (English Translation)

  • Immunization Records

  • Photo of Student (optional)

  • Two completed reference forms or letters of recommendation are required.
    (One must be from a principal or teacher at your school.)

  • The tuition for the 2024 - 2025 school year for international dorm students is $24,000. The tuition for international day students is $17,250. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer financial assistance to international students. Once a student has been accepted and the tuition has been deposited in Ozark Adventist Academy's account, we will issue the I-20 and send it by express mail.  You will then take the I-20 to the consulate in your country to obtain your student visa. 

    Thank you for considering Ozark Adventist Academy as the next step in your academic career. For questions regarding international admissions or finances please send an email to [email protected] or contact Renee Patterson or Donald Upson.
